Adams County Tech Prep Building Trade students under the direction of teacher Dave Snyder constructed this fall and winter a storage shed on the grounds of the Agriculture Center. Now, the Master Gardeners are combining their efforts to plant one side of the roof in sedums, making a green roof which is hoped to be self-sufficient.

The other side of the roof will be shingled. Both roofs will be guttered and drained into a water barrel for storage. Comparisons will be made on the amount of rainwater caught on both sides. Adam McClain of the Ag. Center gives a short summary of the process to a group of on-lookers today, April 4, 2013, at the property.
